    Well, in theory, if you're buying it from the Online Store, you're not going to get it for a few days. So, when you get the phone from the courier, you can activate it then.

    But yeah, if you buy it in a brick and mortar store, you'll have to wait until you can get to an internet connection to activate.

    That much has been said for a while.

    You might be implying that the iPod functionality won't work until you activate it, but once again, you won't have anything on the iPhone to play music-wise until you sync anyway, and you activate during your first sync...
